LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18)– The Clark Memorial Bridge is back open after barges ran into it.

This happened around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday towards the Indiana side of the bridge.

The bridge was shut down in both directions for several hours as a safety precaution.

Officials say three barges broke loose from a tow and hit the bridge.

We’re told there is no visible damage.

This is the second incident involving barges in Louisville in the past week. Last Friday, a barge hit the overlook wall in Waterfront Park.
